Mirror, mirror on the wall, whats the best Christmas pudding of them all?

A couple of people asked me for bread books recommendations, so I thought I’d do a series of review of the books I own, starting from the very first bread book I ever bought – “Bread:baking by hand of bread machine” by Eric Treuille.

This is a great book, and looking at it now writing this review, I am realising how many more recipes I want to try from it.

Read a full review with detailed explanation of the book and its recipes on my blog here
